I was playing Batman: Arkham Asylum and during my travels, I found this item set locked away behind an unpassable vent bar.

It's a single cell, not available to get, just out of reach.

What is this supposed to reference, or is it just random?

Found it while playing the game on my PC. It's location on the map is:

It's one of the Riddler's items: the Ratcatcher's equipment.

How on earth did you find this out? – Only Bolivian Here Oct 16 '11 at 17:24
Just Googled :) I have played through the game and got all the Riddles so I must've seen it, but it was a while back. – Rawling Oct 16 '11 at 17:26
You've put an extra 'h' in 'Ratcatcher'... I can't do a 1-character edit unfortunately. – jwaddell Oct 16 '11 at 22:00
@jwaddell Fixed it. – CyberSkull Oct 16 '11 at 22:51
Whoops, thanks :) – Rawling Oct 17 '11 at 7:21
